Is the capital of Latin Amer. an island at the mouth of the Hudson river? Will Calif. soon hold the balance of power in Mexican nat. politics? Will Latinos reinvigorate the U.S. labor movement? These are some of the provocative questions that are explored in this fascinating account of the Latinization of the Amer. urban landscape. In L.A., Houston, San Antonio, & Dallas, Latinos outnumber non-Hispanic whites; in N.Y., San Diego & Phoenix, they outnumber Blacks. By the middle of the 21st cent., 100 million Amer. will boast Latin Amer. ancestry. Focuses on how Latinos are attempting to translate their urban demographic ascendancy into effective social power. “Essential reading for anyone who wants to grasp the future of urban America.” Illus.
